Pick and Pack Manager - Many Backorders for same item -To release qty issue
I am having an issue with Pick and Pack Manager and the "To Release" field.
We have several backorders for the same item. We are in a production environment, and we release sales orders as the production orders are received.
The problem I am having is when the shipping manager goes to make a delivery, there is no qty to release for the sales order he is trying to ship.
The reason being is that there is another sales order that has a qty in the "To Release" field. Making the "Avail to Release" = 0 for the sales order he wants to ship.
I would like the "To Release" field to be blank, so he can look at the "Avail to Release" qty and ship to whom they choose.
I know the workaround is to clear the "To Release" field for all the sales orders for that item, but this is not ideal. I want the "To Release" field to remain empty.
Does anyone know a solution to this? I hope I explained it clearly.

If you are selecting the specific item on the main selection screen, then you can work with the due dates so that only the particular order required to be shipped will be shown.
FMS is an option but on the Pick and Pack screen I would validate it twice before using..
